Louder Than War is a DVD release from the Welsh rock band Manic Street Preachers. It is a recording of their live concert in the Karl Marx Theatre in Havana, Cuba in 2001.

The concert was notable for being the first time a western rock band had played in Cuba. Fidel Castro was in attendance, and met the band before the concert. The DVD's title came from a conversation between the band and Castro - after the band warned him that the concert would be very loud, Castro responded (through his translator) "It cannot be louder than war, can it?".

The concert was also notable for featuring performances of several songs taken from the band's then-latest album Know Your Enemy, some of which have not been performed since.

The bonus live tracks are songs taken from the same concert, but taken away from the main track listing and shown in inferior sound and video quality.
